The Best San Diego Summer Activities For Families

Hi Lovelies.  Happy Monday, we have one full week of summer break under our belt. I’m finally ready to get our butts up and out.  We took a good week to just chill and recover from school.  This summer, we are going to enjoy all of the fun that is right here in our home town.  Today, I’m sharing San Diego Summer Activities for families.

The Best San Diego Summer Activities For Families featured by popular Los Angeles travel blogger, The Fashionista Momma


LeucadiART Walk

We haven’t been to this art walk, but there are so many throughout San Diego County.  So, you have lots of options.  I’m sure we will check out a few of them, because our girls love art!

Ride The Coaster

We love a good day to ride the coaster to Seaport Village and The Headquarters.  So many cute shops and great places to eat.  The kids love riding the train and checking out all the shops, and it isn’t a day until you get your Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream and ride the carousel in Seaport Village.


La Jolla tidepools are another great spot to spend a day.  The sea lions are on the shore and if you watch the tides, and head down at low tide you can see all the critters.  You can also make a whole day of it and get lunch in La Jolla, or go to the Scripps Aquarium.

Movies In The Park

Movies in the Park are all over San Diego.  One of our favorite spots is Park 101 in Carlsbad.  They have great drinks and the food is so good.  Added bonus, there are games for the kids and they get cotton candy with their kids meal.

Ruby’s on the Pier

Head to Oceanside Pier walkout to the end to eat at Ruby’s.  This is one of my favorite memories from when the girls were little.  I can’t wait to head back there again.  Go on a sunny day close to sunset and enjoy the views and cool breezes.


There are so many great hiking spots in San Diego Annie’s Canyon, Potato Chip Rock, Torrey Pines, and Calaveras.  We love getting out and enjoying all the beauty that SD has to offer.  Be sure to check the activity level to make sure your kids can make the hike.
